Pets are most welcome - I have a golden retriever who loves children. Even the most timid of children have cried at the end of the holiday when saying goodbye to him!

The walk to the village is just 15 minutes and you can order your breakfast baguette and croissants from the shop. They also carry a good range of many products including English favourites. The shop offers a small cafe service with coffees, croissants, beers and wine.

The cleanliness of my gite is paramount and it is my hope that guests leave the property in a similar state. If time restraints make this impossible I will gladly arrange a final clean for 50€.

The Aquitaine/Dordogne region

An abundant wine producing area often referred to as the Tuscany of France where the countryside is covered with vineyards, sunflowers and fruit orchards. The Lot et Garonne is one of the prettiest parts of the south-west of France with rolling hills, magnificent views, châteaux and bastide towns.

Lots of activities locally such as canoeing, horse riding and marked walking trails from the property.

Gourmet food markets almost every night of the week and a super one on Sundays at midday in the local village of Soumensac.

Loubes Bernac

The village of Loubes-Bernac has a village shop that is open every day, a post office and a hairdresser. Most of the daily shopping for bread etc. can be achieved in the village, but the nearest supermarket is 15 minutes in the car, to either Eymet, Duras or Ste Foy la Grande

You don't need to go far to buy your wine - it's virtually on the doorstep
